New Berkley Trans Optic

7 posts in this topic

Man does this look like a sweet new product coming out. It is going to hot. I can't wait to try it. It is similar to the Vanish transition but in a Mono. Pretty cool stuff.

Hiya -

Hmmm. Kinda looks like the old Berkley Photochromatic stuff...gahh...what was it called. Trimax maybe? The Transition part of Vanish Transition is actually pretty cool - it's the Vanish bit I don't like...heh. This stuff might be pretty neat for jigs and other line-watching type tactics. Wonder how it compares in other characteristics to other mono. More like XL, or XT?

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

The line's properties, based on test data, seem balanced – maximum shock resistance and knot strength, plus excellent flexibility and break strength.

Might make for some sweet ice line too!

Berkley offered it's Big Game line in this color for a few years. It was my favorite line for flippin and pitchin. I hope this new stuff is comparable. Anybody seen it for sale locally?

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
